There are still a number of Social Security System members who find it hard to use the online facility due to the lack of internet connection or even the technical knowledge of doing so. Thus, SSS has launched an automated text service to cater to all.
Even if you do not have internet connection, you do not have to travel to your SSS branch to easily obtain information regarding your contributions, loans, etc. You just need to have a working mobile phone and follow these easy steps.
First, you need to register to the SSS Text Service.
